Unformatted text preview: carbons lowest pKa. lowest Combustion of Hydrocarbons Combustion Combustion of hydrocarbons is exothermic generating Combustion CO2 and water. CO Combustion of Relative Stability Combustion All isomers of C8H18 generate 8 molecules of CO2 and 9 of H2O yet different amounts of energy. This energy of yet difference must be directly related to the relative energies of the isomers. of Least stable isomer Most stable isomer Least energy released Oxidation and Reduction in Organic Chemistry Oxidation Assuming the oxidation state of H is +1 and O is -2 it is Assuming possible to calculate the oxidation state of C in compounds containing C, H and O. compounds Oxidation and Reduction in Organic Chemistry Oxidation Oxidation of carbon corresponds to an increase in the Oxidation number of bonds between carbon and oxygen or to a decrease in the number of carbon–hydrogen bonds. Reduction corresponds to an increase in the number of carbon–hydrogen bonds or to a decrease in the number of carbon–oxygen bonds. of Oxidation and Reduction in Organic Chemistry Oxidation Any element more electronegative than C has the same Any effect as O on the oxidation state of C. Oxidation state of C is +2 in CH3Cl and CH3OH. Oxidation Any element less electronegative than C has the same Any effect as H on the oxidation state of C. effect Oxidation state of C is -4 in CH4 and CH3Li....
